Health Insurance - Domestic Students
As a result of the Affordable Care Act, all students are required to have health insurance coverage. Most St. Thomas students can obtain coverage through age 26 under health care policies purchased by their parents. Students who do not have health insurance may purchase policies through a Health Insurance Exchange/Marketplace.
The Affordable Care Act provides tax credits and subsidies for qualified individuals to help pay for insurance purchased in the Marketplace.
In some states, the Marketplace is run by the state. In others it is run by the federal government. MNsure is the Marketplace where Minnesotans can shop, compare and choose health insurance coverage that meets their needs.
